Citrus Sun Returns
Incognito founder Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick has joined forces with guitarist Jim Mullen to resurrect Citrus Sun. The new, mostly instrumental recording, People of Tomorrow, is available in the U.S. on March 17.
Bluey elaborates on the light and breezy feel of People of Tomorrow: “In terms of sound it is also more sparse as it features the sole trumpet reminiscent of the late Donald Byrd, and there is a cool Latin jazz flavor on some of the cuts. The distinctive sound of Jim Mullen’s thumbing guitar brings a tonal quality that is very different to Incognito, but at times it is obvious that this is the Incognito rhythm section and for that we make no excuses, instead celebrating the fact that this is a new project by the same band with me at the helm”.
